Keynote Speaker: Sophos - Are you protected from targeted phishing attacks? Do your users know what not to click on?

The education sector has recently been targeted with a series of phishing attacks. Sophos will demonstrate how hackers are using more complex techniques to catch us out and will share best practices on how not to fall foul of the cyber criminals. Sophos have a range of solutions to stop these type of attacks but more importantly how we can stop staff and pupils from being tricked into clicking in the first place.
